  1. I started barefoot walking after reading your book early this spring. I love it! The problem is it gets harder and harder to wear shoes. I am an active 43 year old woman and have rheumatoid arthritis. Everyone I have talked to tells me barefoot walking is wrong and I should wear custom orthotics. I tend to like to go against the grain and decided to experiment anyhow. Since April I have either worn Vibram Five Fingers or gone barefoot while walking two miles or more a day with my border collie. Now I can enjoy the feel of nature just like her! I also love that my feet look stronger. I actually started driving barefoot last winter because my supportive shoes were killing my feet. Driving barefoot is awesome!
    The only problem is I have to remember to throw a pair of shoes in the car because I am not quite ready to go shoeless everywhere!

    I have been writing about rheumatoid arthritis and barefoot/minimal shoe walking on my blog: http://thelifeandadventuresofcatepoo.blogspot.com/#uds-search-results

    Thanks for this book! It is awesome.

  2. Oh, I forgot walking in the rain barefoot. This spring and summer I have felt like a kid again splashing through puddles with my dog. Lovely!
